Threads of Transformation

Empowering Rural Journey in Sustainable Fashion

This title metaphorically captures the journey of rural women as they undergo a
transformative process, much like the silkworm's journey from egg to butterfly. It
symbolizes the growth, resilience, and beauty that emerges through their
empowerment in sustainable fashion. "Threads of Transformation" represents the
threads of fabric, skill-building, and empowerment that interweave to create
positive change
